Benefits Of Roof Rents In A Camper Van

There are lots of specific features that you'll be keen to assess when you shop for a camper van. Finding a model with the right amount of space and the various amenities you need will be paramount, but you should also take some time to look at other things that can be important. Assessing the roof vents of a few camper van models isn't as exciting as checking out the amenities, but is valuable. You'll want to choose a model that has multiple vents throughout its roof.

Here are some benefits that these vents can provide. 

Temperature Control

While you can open the windows of your camper van at times, you may not always want them open. For example, some people will feel more secure with the windows closed and locked at night. When you have a van that has roof vents, you'll be able to keep the temperature inside the van at a suitable level. With the windows closed during a summer trip, the interior of the van could get warm — even overnight. By opening the roof vents, cool air will enter the van and provide comfort.

Odor Control

The roof vents of your camper van are also useful as a tool for odor control. If you spend a lot of time in this space, it may begin to smell. For example, if you've been hiking or mountain biking and have sweaty clothing, the odor of the clothing can start to scent the interior of the camper van. Additionally, if you're cooking or eating certain foods, the smell in the camper van may be strong. No one wants to step into a camper van that smells a little unpleasant, so opening up the roof vents will allow an exchange of air that keeps the space smelling fresh.

Humidity Control

Roof vents are also useful for humidity control. If you have wet clothing hanging up, for example, the interior of the camper van can get humid. You can even notice a humid environment if it's hot and you've been sweating while you sleep. Too much humidity can encourage the growth of mildew, which you don't want. Opening the roof vents will allow the damp air to flow out of the camper van so that the air inside of the vehicle is more neutral.
